Having Lauren take our wedding pictures was the best decision. She made us feel so comfortable and it was so fun! Even with the whole bridal party, everything went so smoothly. She took such amazing pictures that perfectly captured our perfect day.

Lauren did an amazing job capturing our special day! I was really nervous for the photos because I hate getting my picture taken and feel awkward, but Lauren made it seem so natural and made me feel beautiful in all the photos! Would definitely recommend!

Lauren did an incredible job capturing the love between my fiancé and I. I am overjoyed with our photos, and cherish the candid, raw quality of the images she delivered. Lauren was amazing to work with, making our shoot fun, painless, and memorable. I can’t wait to work with her in the future!

Lauren and Layne were the perfect addition to our big day. There were everything that I wanted in photographers AND more! They were so helpful, professional, and authentic. We were so happy to have them and we literally got the pictures of our dreams that genuinely captured our amazing wedding adventure. They were flexible throughout the whole planning experience and were quick to respond to messages. Thank you again for such an amazing experience. Our wedding would not have been the same without you guys!
